I've learned over the years that staying on the path towards whatever dream or goal one has offers the best chance for success (or whatever you are hoping for). I have been making art for over 30 years but it was one simple five-minute sketch I posted on social media that hurled me into a cartooning frenzy and Lamp was born. My comic, Lamp, was precisely the motivation I needed to return to painting and sketching. Beyond sketching, I've always enjoyed working with oils, acrylics, and charcoal. In 2017 I started painting with hot wax, oil pigments (in various forms), and a blow torch which has influenced my more traditional work. My primary passion is mixed media using acrylic, pencil, charcoal, and Gelli plate prints (to incorporate into paintings). I embrace learning new skills and painting outside the lines. It's an exciting lifelong journey that I am delighted to be on!
